Amina is a twelve-year-old muslim girl, in seventh grade, at her public middle school. She has long, dark hair, and tanned brown skin. She's really shy, and although she's a really talented at singing, has terrible stage fright. She has a popular, and social brother, Mustafa, who everyone likes and she aspires to be like.
This novel takes place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This is important because there are certain parts of Milwaukee that's still quite anti- Iran and anti- Muslim. During the book, a group of young delinquents vandalize a community mosque. and the rest of the community gathered and joined forces to find and take down the criminals.
My reading at home is generally a few minutes before bed or while eating lunch, as I'm busy most of the day with schoolwork and then most of the evening gaming with friends. Sometimes I read while sitting outside just to take in some sunshine and fresh air.
